Be prepared to take on a high-volume order with these insights.

  1. Price – While it may be tempting to give significant discounts, do not go so low on your price that the high-volume order ends up being a loss.
  2. Time Management/Cost – Taking on a high-volume order may take up more time than expected. With a high-volume order, your sell price most likely came down. Ask yourself how you would price and order 100 shirts for five different accounts versus 500 shirts for a single account. Perhaps taking the five smaller orders is a better deal.
  3. Equipment – Do you have the right equipment to do the high-volume job? Do you have enough consumables? Do you have the trained personnel that can complete the orders without many mistakes?
  4. Outsourcing – Sometimes it’s best to say yes to the order, and then outsource the job.
